Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Another piece of the water damage restoration steps involves our certified technicians cleaning and sanitizing any surfaces that may need it. Depending on the situation, we have sanitizing treatments ranging from antimicrobial to complex disinfectant treatments.

If the source of the water came from a contaminated water source, there is a chance that surfaces and contents within the affected area of the water damage will need to be cleaned. Even if the water involved in the situation was clean but has sat for more than 24 hours, cleaning treatments may be required.

At SERVPRO of Shakopee/Savage/Prior Lake, our team is trained on the various cleaning techniques depending on the type of damage and the materials that need to be cleaned. We pride ourselves on being a no “nickel and dime” operation meaning that we have a “restore” versus “replace” mentality. In addition to saving money by restoring, we also have an in-house reconstruction division that has vast rebuild capabilities. This means that you won't have to call another contractor to repair your property!
